The Police invited to play in Cuba
According to foxnews, the Police have been invited to perform in Cuba as part of their 30th anniversary reunion tour. If it happens, the free show will take place in Havana in December, and it will be the last show on the group's North American tour this year.
All three members of the Police are familiar with the island -- guitarist Andy Summers and drummer Stewart Copeland performed in Cuba back in 1999, as part of a Music Bridges concert that also featured Peter Frampton, Bonnie Raitt, Gladys Knight, and the Indigo Girls, among others, while singer-bassist Sting and his wife Trudie Styler were there for the 2006 Christmas holidays, and they were warmly embraced by the Cuban musical and artistic communities.
Meanwhile, foxnews.com is disputing reports about record executives passing on the chance to release a new Police album after being unimpressed by some demo recordings. The site claims there are no plans to do any new material on the group's world tour, which starts May 28th in Vancouver, British Columbia, nor is there any thought about making a new album. The initial story, which ran in the New York Daily News, claimed that a demo was played for some of the bigger record companies to gauge interest, with the implication that the Police were free agents, but a source told foxnews.com, "(T)he Police are and always will be signed to A&M/Interscope."
